    Sega was also name dropped in the 1st episode of Solar Opposites, Justin Roiland's other show on Hulu. And I think someone was playing something that looked like a Sega Saturn.

    I noticed that the SEGA font was used in Static-X's new music video

    For a brief moment at 1:38

    This could be a bit of a stretch, but there's a reference to an RPG game in the manga Komi Can't Communicate called "PGO" (at least that's what it's called in the bootleg translation I'm reading)

    I got the impression that PGO could stand for "Phantasy Galaxy Online"

    This reminds me:

    If you wanted to celebrate the existence of deodorant, this special range of Lynx Africa has you covered. There's an acknowledgement of the PlayStation launch in the UK and Ireland - we don't run a "Sony Retro" but if we did, we'd want to document the full range.

    So almost a good thing the Saturn didn't get off the ground.

    In a more recent Adventure Time episode, Finn and Jake are playing a pretty obvious Phantasy Star Parody. It even makes fun of the game's notorious grind.

    Funny, I don't remember actively grinding that much in classic Phantasy Star games other than maybe to get money for new equipment. Grinding sounds more like Final Fantasy.

    (The very legendary and talented) Kendrick Lamar referred to owning the SEGA Genesis in his iconic Nosetalgia feature with Pusha T.

    Season 2 Episode 9 of the anime Silver Spoon has a Puyo reference pretty early into the episode.

    "I, Eye Guy" from season 1 of Power Rangers. Child creates virtual reality... thing for a science fair.

    Or is he promoting Sega VR??


    p.s. I haven't watched an episode of Power Rangers in 25 years. It's janky as all hell.

    Deltarune Chapter 2 has a bunch of Chu Chu Rocket puzzles strewn about it.

    Also the final boss looks like Mecha Sonic to me.

    I recently remembered an episode of Casualty where a boy with a Game Gear is electrocuted (not by the Game Gear). The Game Gear is later smashed by the child's irate mother.

    It was probably episode 7x19, which aired 23 January 1993.

    Also, a Mega Drive and Sonic 1 appeared in an episode of Neighbours. There's no way anyone's finding which one though. It was on 5 days per week.

    There was a Scottish advert for a particular brand of bread in the mid-90s which ended with a kid playing his Game Gear, with Sonic and Knuckles heard coming from it! :V

    Hopefully one of the VHS "archive" YouTube channels I'm subscribed to will upload it at some point.
